It was sad news when we learned that The Gaslight Anthem would be going on indefinite hiatus. But the other side of that coin was that their front man Brian Fallon would be putting out a solo album. That record Painkillers is due out on March 11th, and he’s uploaded one of the songs for us to hear.
It lacks the aggression of The Gaslight Anthem, but we all knew that his solo stuff was never going to be that flavour anyway. Brian Fallon is one of the better songwriters of today, and this song is a nice preview of what’s to come.
